During EVANESCENCE‘s November 21 concert at 713 Music Hall in Houston, Texas, the band was joined by HALESTORM‘s Lzzy Hale to perform a cover of LINKIN PARK‘s “Heavy.” Video footage of the performance can be seen below.
The show was part of the EVANESCENCE and HALESTORM‘s U.S. co-headlining tour, which kicked off on November 5 at the Veterans Memorial Colosseum in Portland, Oregon and will run through December 18 in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Lzzy and EVANESCENCE‘s Amy Lee have been performing “Heavy” at every stop on the current tour. Lzzy spoke about the decision to cover the track in an interview with the 105.7 The Point radio station.
“[Amy and I] were lobbing a couple of ideas back and forth and then, all of a sudden, we landed on LINKIN PARK,” Lzzy said. “And [we thought], you know what? That would be really cool because inadvertently it would be a tribute to [late LINKIN PARK singer] Chester [Bennington], but also, everything that this song has been about, we’ve all been through that — everybody. And so it’s almost this like very church moment where you walk out onstage and you’re, like, ‘All right. This is my church. These are my people. We’re all doing this together.'”
